Shah Rukh Khan, the epitome of self-made success, entered the entertainment arena in 1992, and soon earned the crown of "Baadshah of Bollywood". Seen here is Shah Rukh with his wife Gauri Khan and children. An interior designer by profession, Gauri married him in 1991 and the couple has three kids - Aryan Khan (born 1997), Suhana Khan (born 2000) and AbRam (2013). Don't they all look cute together?
We've all come across that one family that has an infinite number of members. Here's presenting the big family of Aamir Khan. In this picture, we can spot his ex-wife Reena Dutta, Kiran Rao with her parents, son Junaid and Azad with daughter Ira, uncle Mansoor Khan, sisters Nikhat Khan, Farhat Khan and Nuzhat Khan.

Salman's father Salim Khan had adopted a girl named Arpita, who was the daughter of a homeless woman who died on a Mumbai footpath. Arpita married Aayush Sharma, the son of a politician, in 2014. Together, they have a son, Ahil, born in 2016. Recently, Arpita confirmed that she is expecting her second child.
From the Khans, we move on to the Bachchans. The family legacy came into the limelight through the poetry of Allahabad born Harivansh Rai Bachchan. His son, Amitabh Bachchan, debuted in Bollywood through the 1969-film Saat Hindustani. His popularity was upheld by his son Abhishek. The cute kiddo, you see at the bottom is Abhishek's daughter, Aaradhya Bachchan.
In his lengthy career, Amitabh has entertained the audience with films like Anand, Zanjeer, Sholay, Deewar, Don, Coolie, Agneepath, Paa, and Piku. He married actress Jaya Bhaduri. Together, they have a son Abhishek Bachchan and daughter Shweta Bachchan Nanda.

The Kapoors can rightfully be called the first family of the film industry. Prithviraj Kapoor (sitting in the centre) was the first from the family to pursue a career in films. All his sons - Raj Kapoor, Shammi Kapoor (standing) and Shashi Kapoor (sitting) made a successful career in films.
